Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Quick Bread



We had been on a bad frozen waffle habit for a long time. For a quick weekday breakfast, we would grab a box, toast them, and wolf them down.  It didn't take too much time..alot of kids ate them plain out the toaster..no syrup, no butter, just like a pieces of plain bread (weird, yes?)  Well, we decided to kick the frozen waffles to the curb.  No more.   We have actually saved some money, which is nice.  But, this leaves me with several days during the week filling in the breakfast menu. Enter...quick bread! 
In my quest, I found this bread from Mel's Kitchen Cafe.  Her post not only has the recipe, but, a lovely idea of giving the dry ingredients in a jar for a gift.  Very cute! Labels included. Check them out..adorable.
For breakfast, snack or dessert, or a gift..this bread is perfectly delicious.

1-1/3 cup flour

  6. I made cinnamon quick bread that has a very similar base. I have some leftover buttermilk in the fridge - I'm thinking I just found what to use it for :)

  7. Do you need to use buttermilk or can you use regular or even skim milk?

    1. Or what about yogurt if you need something thick?

    2. I was thinkig the same thing. Would using skim milk really screw this up?

    3. I think skim milk would be ok. I have used regular milk and it worked out fine.

  12. We usually substitute applesauce instead of using butter. Would that be okay in this recipe?
